U.S. Weighs Sweeping Travel Ban on Chinese Communist Party Members
Counting party members as well as their families, the ban could technically bar travel to the United States for as many as 270 million people, according to one internal administration estimate.

“The overwhelming majority of C.C.P. members have no involvement or input into Beijing’s policymaking, so going after the entire party membership is like China sanctioning all Republicans because of frustrations with Trump,” said Jude Blanchette, a China scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. “Such a move would inflame public opinion in China, as this would target nearly 10 percent of the entire Chinese population and would do so based on blanket assertions of guilt.”

The US-China Rivalry Is About Capitalist Competition
Today, there is a lot of talk about a “New Cold War” between China and the United States: a Cold War between authoritarianism and liberal democracy. But we all know that China did not become authoritarian just two years ago. The whole establishment of the United States has been very happy about Chinese authoritarianism for a long time.

Just two weeks after the June 4, 1989 massacre in Tiananmen Square, on June 20, President George H. W. Bush wrote a secret letter to Deng Xiaoping. The letter said that the United States was not so mad about the Communist Party sending the army to shoot its people. Bush told Deng that the United States was only a two-hundred-years-young country, and China was a five-thousand-years-old country with great contributions to world civilization, so the Chinese leaders were wise and knew what was best for the Chinese people. Bush assured Deng that Tiananmen was not going to stand in the way of the great commercial relationship between the United States and China. If there were an ideology-based Cold War between the United States and China, it should have started thirty years ago. (...)

Chairman Mao is the gold standard for mass murder to be sure, to be fair he had more to work with than Stalin.  Stalin tried very hard though to keep up.

The US government has been guilty of the same in the past. The European expansion on the North American continent was accompanied by (arguably) the greatest genocide in recorded history.

The previous Chinese government wasn't much better. 

Google: China’s execution of four Tibetans in Lhasa

And if executing protesters is already too much, then you'll want to avoid the photos... 

Also:
China is committing egregious human rights violations against Muslims.

Where’s Ilhan Omar? Where’s Rashida Tlaib?

They must be too busy hating America and embracing Chinese style communism...

China's foreign ministry said on Saturday the United States needed to stop the "unreasonable suppression" of Chinese companies like Huawei, and a Chinese newspaper said the government was ready to retaliate against Washington.

The Trump administration on Friday moved to block global chip supplies to blacklisted telecoms equipment company Huawei Technologies, spurring fears of Chinese retaliation and hammering shares of US producers of chipmaking equipment.

Benefit of central planning?  I dont know.

The Washington Post has a fascinating story about how in China research is being done that could result in an enormous technological leap ahead of the United States.

The research means that “hacking-resistant communications networks” are being built across China, sensors are being designed “to see through smog and around corners,” and prototypes are being build of “computers that may someday smash the computational power of any existing machine.

“All the gear is based on quantum technology — an emerging field that could transform information processing and confer big economic and national-security advantages to countries that dominate it. To the dismay of some scientists and officials in the United States, China’s formidable investment is helping it catch up with Western research in the field and, in a few areas, pull ahead … Beijing is pouring billions into research and development and is offering Chinese scientists big perks to return home from Western labs. China’s drive has sparked calls for more R&D funding in the United States.”

The story defines quantum technology as seeking “to harness the distinct properties of atoms, photons and electrons to build more powerful tools for processing information.”

The Post writes that “last year, China had nearly twice as many patent filings as the United States for quantum technology overall, a category that includes communications and cryptology devices, according to market research firm Patinformatics. The United States, though, leads the world in patents relating to the most prized segment of the field — quantum computers — thanks to heavy investment by IBM, Google, Microsoft and others.”

In a recent report from the Center for a New American Security, it was said that “the United States must be prepared for a future in which its traditional technological predominance faces new, perhaps unprecedented challenges.”

It is an Eye Opening piece (and you can read the story in its entirety here). Quantum technology is way, way, way above my pay grade, but it seems to me that this story has a lot of implications that have nothing to do with technology.
